Hey there! I am Christine. I have a full time job in a university but, I am into blogging as a form of diversion from the stressful work environment. Most of the time, I share my personal adventures and misadventures here in my blog. I love writing and I believe that learning is a never ending process. My full time work entails me to do research-related tasks. I am also a part time online research assistant, article writer, blogger, and psychological test developer. I am an independent contractor on oDesk so, if you
think I can be of help or I can provide you assistance with projects appropriate to my skills, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you

My passport was overdue for renewal which I should have done last June 2011. Good thing there is no penalty in renewing Philippine passports otherwise, I'll probably be paying buckets of money for the delay. With all the "modernization" efforts in the different government agencies, I can say that I am on neutral grounds. We all know that upgrades with government agencies and infrastructures also equate to people making some adjustments or sacrifices err, hassle.
It was my first time to go to DFA-Aseana in Macapal Blvd. I actually didn't know how to commute going there. After a few internet research, I was sure of one thing and that is to go to SM Mall of Asia and take it from there.
So, here's how I got to DFA-Aseana Macapagal Blvd:
1. From Buendia, I hopped onto the orange jeepneys going to SM MOA.
2. From SM MOA, I walked a bit towards the bus loading and unloading area.
3. There are buses with signboard "MIA and DFA", get on that bus. It costs Php 1…
Finally, I can update my blog after an unforgettable backpacker's trip with my office friends. Last April 18 to 21, we experienced our much awaited trip to Boracay. Originally, we were only aiming to set foot at Boracay but, our beloved Accountant volunteered to tour us around her hometown since she will be going on vacation on the same dates. So, our Boracay escapade was upgraded into Antique-Boracay route. Here are the details of our tour. . . Day 00 - April 18 (Friday) At 5pm right on the dot, we all stepped out of our offices and headed to Batangasport to make it on time for the 9pm departure. However, due to the large volume of 2go passengers, our ETD was delayed and we were able to leave the port at around past 10pm (I cannot remember exactly). It was my second time to ride 2go but I was shocked that couples, families, group of students and all sorts or people filled up the waiting area at Batangas port. The good thing about sailing during summer is that, the sea was more calm…
Finally, my long awaited get away pushed through after a few times of rescheduling. Thanks to the long weekend break this Halloween season, my boyfriend and I was able to set foot at the Tamaraw Beach Resort in Puerto Galera. I actually recommended that we stay here at Tamaraw Beach rather than White Beach because the latter is known to be a party place and where most people go to. Unlike Tamaraw Beach which is not so crowded and the ambiance is just perfect if you want to have pure relaxation time. Here are a few things on what I can say about Tamaraw Beach Resort in Puerto Galera: Location: Tamaraw Beach is easily accessible from Batangas Pier -- you just book your ticket directly going to the place. Another alternative is to book a ferry ride going to the White Beach then, there is a shuttle provided by Tamaraw Beach Resort that will take you to the resort which is about 5 – 10 minutes away from White Beach. In our case, we were about to buy tickets going to the White Beach but, I s…
